Did you know that the Sanders campaign has been very successful

in phone banking? Did you know that there are thousands of Debate Watch parties scheduled all over the country in which attendees are going to be asked to host phone-banking parties? 'Course, that's going to be difficult now that the Sanders campaign no longer has access to those lists. Did I mention the phone banking events up to now have been wildly successful with over a million calls made?

I've been working with the Sanders campaign

since mid-July and this is what I can tell you. This man is running an honest campaign. There has not been a hint of subterfuge, or dishonesty, or a win-at-all-costs zeitgeist -- it is and has been exactly what you see. Above board. Honest. Above reproach. If it was anything else I would have been out of here at the first hint of sleaze. Sanders recently got the CWA and DFA endorsements and celebrated their 2 millionth donation and not a word from the bought-and-paid for press. Now, all of a sudden, they're writing about Sanders. One day before the debate.

The DNC, however, has scheduled the least amount of debates it could get away with and at times ensuring the FEWEST people would be watching. The fact that the Sanders campaign INFORMED THE DNC that their third-party vendor had lax security weeks ago, and this is, one day before the debates, being released to the press BY THE DNC is more than suspicious. It's business as usual for the Vichy Dem wing of the Democratic Party. You will know them by their works.

story interestingly timed? Right before the debate and coming out of the DNC who has been trying to shove HRH down everyone else's throat. And a data breech -- you know, like someone else we know. Hmmm, who else does that? Blaming your opponent for something you've done? It's right on the tip of my tongue. Starts with "R."

Please Wish Aunt Ruby A Happy 94th Birthday Today!

My Great Aunt Ruby (she's my grandmother's sister) turns 94 today so could you wonderful DUers kick in a nice "Happy Birthday, Aunt Ruby!" and I'll show it to her when she gets up (I am privileged to have her live in my home)?

Thanks, guys!

I just can't stop being blood red angry about this.

The guy that made that highly-edited video should be hauled in as an accomplice. The MSM media needs to be called out for never even questioning the authenticity as well as their shilling for right wing crazies and featuring them as "experts."

I remember when I was in college, I didn't make much money (was putting myself through back when you could still do that) and going to PP to get my birth control pills, pap smears, pelvic exams and breast exams. They were on a sliding scale and it was something that I could actually afford. If they hadn't been there I could have never afforded those services otherwise. The VAST MAJORITY of what PP does has nothing to do with abortions but even if it was ALL they did, abortion is a legal medical procedure. Don't like it? Don't get one. And these anti-choice MEN. MEN have NO RIGHT EVER to determine if a woman is going to carry a pregnancy full term or not. NONE! And don't ever think you do!

I also remember a time in this country when abortions were illegal. Do these vile anti-abortion pieces of offal think that just because it's illegal women won't get abortions? No. The rich and upper-middle class fly to other countries that allow abortions. Middle class women always knew doctors who would perform a D & C and the poor women were reduced to various devices and concoctions, risking their lives to end an unwanted pregnancy.

I can't tell you how I truly hate these anti-choice people. I hate the churches they go to, the media that they listen to and the politicians who control but appease them.

So, are the same people who proclaimed "All Lives Matter"

the same ones who are denying Syrian refugees access to their states? It didn't take long to prove that the whole "All Lives Matter" really meant "White, Male, Heterosexual, Protestant Lives Matter." But we knew that.

UPDATE: Links for tonight's debate for those without a tv service.

See below for several ways to watch if you don't have a TV and/or TV service.

So, about this meme that you have to have bazillions of dollars

to compete in today's political environment. If that was the case, Jeb would be winning by a landslide, Meg Whitman would have been California's Governor and Carly Fiorina would have been one of it's Senators.

Keep fighting, Bernie supporters, it's been done before and we can do it again.

Question for Iowans

I have a question for you Iowans;

Yesterday, we had a Phone Banking for Bernie Event at my house and we were calling Iowans. Probably about 75% to 80% of the calls went unanswered (or answering machines). Would you say that is because people are looking at their caller ID and, not recognizing the number (or being an out-of-state number) people are just not picking up? I know you guys must get inundated with calls for all the candidates and I'm sure the closer to the caucusing it gets the worse it gets but, in your opinion, is phone banking to Iowa voters effective or is it considered more along the lines of a PITA?

Thanks in advance!
